Where you start in a divorce case makes a difference

West Virginia and Kentucky residents who are contemplating moving forward with a divorce probably have a lot of questions that they feel they need answers to first. A deliberate approach is a good idea when it comes to divorce, as there are few other lifetime events that can have such a significant impact on you and your family. Where you start in a divorce case makes a difference.

In the beginning of a divorce case, you'll need to figure out what your ultimate goals are in the case. For example, for many people who are going through a divorce that involves minor children, the custody of those children is paramount, as is obtaining an order for child support. On the other hand, for those who do not have children, the primary concern in a divorce case is usually the division of assets and debts, as well as alimony.

Once you know the goals that are most important to you, it is then prudent to consider whether there is a possibility that you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse might be able to resolve the majority of the divorce issues through out-of-court negotiation or even mediation. If so, you will both likely save quite a bit of time and money, as well as potential stress and heartache.

At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients achieve their goals in a divorce case from start to finish. Along the way, many questions will come up. We work with our clients to get them the answers they need in order to make sound decisions. For more information, please visit the divorce overview section of our law firm's website.
